DALLAS, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The IP&TV World Forum has again honored AT&T* with an IP&TV Industry Award for AT&T U-verse® TV. The IP&TV Industry Awards honor service providers for their innovation, excellence and achievement in the IPTV industry.
IP&TV Industry Award winners were announced Wednesday, March 23, at the 2011 IP&TV World Forum in London. AT&T U-verse TV won an IP&TV Industry Award for Best Multiscreen TV Service, and was also nominated as a finalist in the Best IPTV, Hybrid or Connected TV Service Growth Achievement category. In 2009, AT&T U-verse TV won two IP&TV Industry Awards for Best IPTV Service Growth Achievement for most Innovative New Service for Total Home DVR.
"Our top priority for AT&T U-verse is to deliver the best TV experience, period," said Brian Shay, senior vice president of U-verse, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. "We're proud to receive this award because it reflects our commitment to innovation and matches the positive feedback that we're getting from our U-verse TV customers."
In 2010, AT&T significantly expanded its multi-screen options for customers with hit TV shows on U-verse TV, U-verse Online, U-verse Mobile, and U-verse TV on Xbox 360. U-verse Mobile lets U-verse TV subscribers manage DVR recordings, and with a qualifying U-verse TV plan, download and watch hit TV shows on their smartphone.
AT&T U-verse customer success is driven by an all-Internet Protocol (IP) service that delivers a better TV experience. AT&T U-verse is the fastest growing TV provider in the country, with more TV subscribers added than any of the major TV providers reported in 2009 and 2010.
AT&T U-verse has received a positive response from customers since its introduction, and the IP&TV Industry Awards is the latest accolade for the service. In 2010, AT&T U-verse Mobile was honored with a TelcoTV Vision Award for Service Provider Innovation. Now AT&T U-verse TV ranks "Highest in Residential Television Service Satisfaction in the North Central, South and West Regions," according to the J.D.
